Hear the original 1989 live on-the air exchange between Jody May-Chang and Fox mouthpiece Sean Hannity that got Hannity kicked off the air at KCSB-FM Radio for his homophobic rants.
As part of KCSB’s 50th Anniversary of broadcasting, the Hannity vs. May-Chang exchange will be rebroadcast for the first time in 22 years!
This will be part of tomorrow’s LIVE CALL-IN broadcast of: ‘Revisiting Sean Hannity’, Thursday 12/22/11 10 am – 12 Noon on “50 Years of People Powered Radio” on KCSB-FM 91.9
Hannity and May-Chang both produced weekly shows at KCSB, the University of California at Santa Barbara radio station, as community members in the public affairs department. May-Chang hosted “Gay & Lesbian Perspectives,” a one-hour weekly news, information program. Hannity on the other hand hosted a ranting imitation of Rush Limbaugh type show called “The Pursuit of Happiness.”
May-Chang called in to Hannity’s show to dispute Hannity and his guest spreading misinformation and homophobia over the air. Hannity’s guest Gene Antonio, is the author of a propaganda book titled “The AIDS Cover-Up? The Real And Alarming Facts About AIDS.” – a book written to spread misinformation and hysteria about AIDS.
It was this very exchange that got Hannity kicked off the air at KCSB, and what Hannity subsequently used to bolster his career as a victim of the left and branding himself as the most controversial college radio talk show host in America.

MOUNTIN TIME 11 am – 1 pm

Fischer’s visceral scorn for gays was rarely, if ever, challenged by the Idaho news media that ran to him for a quote as if he was the anointed representative of all that is Christian in Idaho. He was essentially considered a “balanced” voice to oppose gays in Idaho.
Fischer is now climbing into the national spotlight to brand homosexuals and others who don’t fit into his narrow view of the world as threats that should be locked up or perhaps even executed. This past year, he was hoisted into the national spotlight when he was included in MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann’s Worst Person segment for his xenophobic rant that called on banning Muslims from the serving in the U.S. military following the Fort Hood tragedy.
More recently Fischer has been calling for the national criminalization of homosexuality, comparing gays to everything from IV drug users to murderers. This fact was brought out by Fox News’s Alan Colmes who called out Bryan Fischer on is daily radio show.
Colmes did what no reporter or editor in Idaho had the common sense, guts, or journalistic integrity to do when it came to Bryan Fischer â€“ Colmes held him accountable for his words and pressed him with hard questions! Continue reading →
